Our religious experience leads us to place a special value on truth, equality, simplicity and peace. These testimonies, as they are known, are lived rather than written. They lead us as Quakers to translate our faith into action by working for social justice, to support peacemakers and care for the environment.
Our work & witness to truth, equality, simplicity and peace, relies on your generous support: please consider making a donation to one of our Central England Quaker projects, or to our General Fund.
Donate to the General Fund
The General Fund supports the life, work and witness of the Area Meeting. It provides financial support to the principal CEQ projects, and to Area Meeting committees, such as Outreach, Quaker Quest, Sustainability and Communications. It funds training for Quakers undertaking voluntary roles and provides bursaries to local Quakers attending courses and conferences. It also supports, through subscriptions, Quaker involvement in local ecumenical and interfaith work.
Central England Quakers have established several organisations and committees to help carry out our work in the world.
